In The Saga of Bi˘rn, an aging viking quests for an honorable death in battle so that he might be granted access to afterlife in Valhalla. It's a gorgeous short that mixes CG with some 2D. The character designs manage to capture that perfect blend of surly, yet adorable. The animation is well done. The plot is coherent. The punchline to every single joke is death and if you have a sadistic sense of humor, you'll thoroughly enjoy it.
The short was created as a Bachelor's project by students of The Animation Workshop. The team included Benjamin Juel Kousholt (Animator), Jesper Aagaard Jensen (Animator), Jonas Kristian Doctor (Animator), Daniel Dion Christensen (Animator), Pernille ěrum-Nielsen (Animator), Jonas Georgakakis (CG-Artist), Mads Lundgňrd Christensen (CG-Artist), Frederik Valentin Bjerre-Poulsen (CG-Artist), Steffen Lyhne (CG-Artist).
